Twitter Charity Run
The #TwitterCharityRun Results page is now up – please enter your results here!!
For the past 17 years I have been involved in organizing a Run/Fun Walk benefiting our local Hospice (www.runforhospice.org). We have raised over $500,000 for this incredible organization. Recently, I have participated in two “Virtual Races” The Twitter Road Race put on by Doug over at I run because and an earlier event put on by Stephanie and friends over at Run for Fun. I loved the thought of fellow runners participating in these global events and really enjoyed participating in both. So I decided to put together charity and the virtual run and create the Twitter Charity Run.
Twitter Charity Run
Tweet – Give – Run – Join us between April 13th and 15th for this fun/virtual run and support your favorite charity at the same time. The idea – Take the amount you would normally pay for a race registration and give that amount (or a different amount) to a charity of your choice. It is a win/win! You get to run a fun virtual event with people all over the world and you can support your favorite charity at the same time.
Many of us will be running events that weekend and that counts! The key is taking the extra step to support a charity of your choice.
When – April 13th thru April 15th 2012
